This book is designed to help scientifically astute non-specialists understand basic geophysical and computational fluid dynamics concepts relating to oil spill simulations, and related modeling issues and challenges.  A valuable asset to the engineer or manager working off-shore in the oil and gas industry, the authors, a team of renowned geologists and engineers, offer practical applications to mitigate any offshore spill risks, using research never before published.


Oil Spill Response

RRP $821.99

International experts in the field of oil spill response, including reprsentatives from 26 NATO countries, participated in a workshop in Canada to discuss their experience in the development and application of current and emerging technologies for oil spill response in the marine environment. These presentations which form the basis of chapters in this book provide a practical viewpoint of methods used to deal with oil spills under the variety of environmental conditions found in the marine environment. In particular, focus is given to the evaluation of oil spill countermeasures for use under arctic conditions in light of anticipated regional increases in marine traffic (e.g. Northwest Passage) and industrial activities (e.g. offshore oil and gas exploration) in the future.

This book provides a timely international perspective on applied research and development, technology transfer, and "lessons learned" from field trials and actual case studies associated with recent spill events. Topics include Preparedness/Contingency Planning, (Eco-terrorism); Oil Spill Fate and Transport (Environmental Persistence, Remote Sensing, modelling, Biodegradation), Biological Effects (Environmental Effects Monitoring and Environmental Risk Assessment); and Operational Response (Containment/Recovery Treating Agents, Shoreline Cleanup, In-situ Burning, Emerging Response Strategies). This book provides a synopsis as to the methods currently employed to deals with spills and an insight on future technologies under development.

Enhanced Recovery Methods For Heavy Oil And Tar Sands

RRP $445.99

Recent price increases continue to stress the need for alternative resources. With conventional production steadily declining, advances in enhanced recovery will be required so that more drillers can extend their oil production and make reserves last longer. Thanks to significant drilling technology breakthroughs, wells are digging deeper for more unconventional resources, in particular heavy oil. A practical guide on heavy oil-related recovery methods is essential for drillers and producers alike. To feed this demand, James Speight, a well-respected professor and author, provides a must-read for drillers, domestic and abroad, that are involved in production enhancement. Covering the spectrum, Speight explains the current methods of recovery for heavy oil and tar sand bitumen technology, broken down by thermal and non-thermal methods. He provides complete coverage on important topics such as geology and origin of heavy oil, heavy oil properties, introductory methods on primary, secondary and tertiary method recovery and how-to upgrade and process heavy oil. Rounded out with a glossary of key terminology, any engineer and oil personnel that works with heavy oil and tar sand bitumen will greatly benefit from this much-needed text.


Spillover And Mobility Of Species On Solid Surfaces

""Spillover and Mobility of Species and Solid Surfaces"" collects the papers which were presented at the Fifth International Conference Spillover, either as oral or poster contributions, as well as the summaries of the invited lectures. This congress and its publication in the Studies on Surface Science and Catalysis series follow the tradition of previous conferences on spillover, initiated in Lyon, 1983, and continued in Leipzig, 1989, Kyoto 1993 and Dalian, 1997. For the fifth conference, held in S.L. el Escorial (Madrid), the organising committee has attempted to compile representative contributions which illustrate the advances in understanding the spillover phenomenon since 1997. Spillover is a process taking place during the interface of gas reactant molecules (mainly hydrogen and oxygen) on solid surfaces. However, different contributions to the more general area of the chemistry at surfaces, related with the mobility and migration of species, diffusion through membranes, fuel cell catalysts, etc., have also been included. In fact the title of the present volume summarizes this attempt to extend the conference topics towards dynamics at surfaces.

Among the 70 contributions received, the 56 accepted papers were selected on the basis of the reports of at least two international reviewers, according to standards comparable to those applied for other specialised journals. These papers are from 21 different countries.
